Company Summary

We deliver personal financial services to large audiences of un(der)banked consumers, both directly (online and mobile) and by private-labeling our platform to businesses. By taking consumers away from the cash economy, away from check cashers and away from payday lenders, we stabilize people financially and help then (re)build their lives.
